Leon's Tips
USING A HOT MELT GLUE GUN FOR CREATIVE FLY TYING

 Here's another great Fly Tying Tip for your readers.

Its really great for making Shellbacks on shrimp, bloodworms, etc. Use Clear or Color it with Permanent Marker pens. Many, Many uses. Easy to use. Easy to stick on wings, etc. Create thorax covers; easy to apply heat from tip to remelt or shape. Excellent sinking properties. does not come off in the water.

MMy small gun is a Rapesco and uses 7.4 x 100mm Sticks. Very easy to use.

Some sample pictures of the effect, but really does not do them justice; as seeing the created finished product really does nicely.

SPREAD THE WORD
